l he kicked 63 yards to give the Carolina Panthers a dramatic win over the New York Giants Blue Devin Funchess Jersey , he knew exactly where he was going to put it.Gano took the ball into his office and placed and placed it neatly on a kicking tee?one autographed by Tom Dempsey.It seemed only fitting, Gano said.It was Dempsey, after all, who was the only kicker in league history to boot a game-winning 63-yard field goal prior to Gano's heroics last Sunday that gave Carolina a 33-31 victory. Dempsey's kick came on Nov. 8, 1970, helping the Saints beat the Lions 19-17 ?17 years before Gano was born. Matt Prater holds the NFL record for the longest field goal of 64 yards, but it wasn't a game-winner.Gano said that while he's never met Dempsey, now 71, he's always admired his accomplishment from afar. He has watched the historic kick on You Tube several times and even stood at the site of Dempsey's kick at Tulane University, which is no longer used for football but now a common area for students.He kept the tee in his office as inspiration."I would look at that tee sometimes and be like, man Devin Funchess Jersey 2019 , that would be awesome to have that opportunity to do that," said Gano, a converted soccer player who didn't start playing football until his freshman year of high school. "So to have that chance on Sunday, it was like everything came full circle."Gano received the plastic orange tee as a Christmas gift from his wife's uncle back when he was a kicker at Florida State. It came with a certificate of authenticity and a picture of Dempsey signing it."Hey, I thought it was the coolest thing ever," Gano said with a wide smile. "To a lot of people it might not be all that to them, but to me it was really, really cool."When Gano ran on to the field with 6 seconds left, he said had no idea exactly how long the kick was from.He said he was too busy doing what he normally does before every kick 鈥?lining it up and making sure he had good footing, all before the play clock expired. He didn't find out it was a 63-yarder until after the ball arched over the crossbar 鈥?with a few yards to spare 鈥?to give Carolina the lead with 1 second remaining and was mobbed at midfield by teammates .Gano said he was never nervous, either.He'd made longer kicks 鈥?his longest being 75 yards 鈥?in practice.On Wednesday Stitched Greg Olsen Jersey , coach Ron Rivera and quarterback Cam Newton wore t-shirts to their news conference that read "Gano lo Gano." It was a tip of the cap to the Panthers' Spanish broadcast crew and the words they used to describe Gano's winning kick on Sunday. The verb "ganar" means "to win" in Spanish, and when conjugated the meaning translates to "Gano to win!""A great quarterback is only as good as his kicker," Newton said.Gano is on quite a run for the Panthers.He's made 36 of his last 37 field goals including 35 straight at home, a streak that dates back to Oct. 10, 2016. When told that by a reporter, he politely asked him to knock on wood.Gano said the memories he will always have in celebrating with his teammates after the win are something he will cherish forever, even more so than the game ball.He joked that he's not sure how long the ball will actually stay in his office."My kids will probably take it down and throw it around and kick it," he said with a laugh. "But that won't bother me one bit." No matter how much you want to keep Daryl Williams, it’s not a good idea."The Carolina Panthers are not expected to use the franchise tag on any of their 2019 free agents and that’s a good thing. Their large class of out-going free agents consists mainly of role players and depth. They only have three free agents who could conceivably draw attention from other teams (excluding the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants). If they were to use the tag, the deadline is today.Daryl Williams, Devin Funchess Youth Kawann Short Jersey , and Thomas Davis are the only noteworthy players with expiring contracts who, at present, do not intend to retire when the league year opens at 4 P.M. on March 13th. The team has already announced that it does not intend to bring back Thomas Davis, despite his wishes, and is therefore obviously not an athlete they would consider tagging. Similarly, the team has made no attempt to re-sign wide receiver Devin Funchess. A breakout year by rookie D.J. Moore combined with a lackluster season by Funchess has left both sides looking elsewhere in 2019.The only real candidate for the franchise tag this year would be Williams. He is a former All-Pro player at a position of real need for the Panthers. The only problem is that All-Pro players don’t come cheaply and neither do franchise tags. The tag number for offensive linemen last season was about $14 million. The Panthers currently have $17 million in cap space and a list of holes long enough to preclude blowing their whole budget on one player.A long term deal could be creatively structured towards a reasonable cap figure for this year. Unfortunately for the Panthers, there are plenty of teams in the league with loads of cap space and gaping needs on their offensive lines. Williams doesn’t need to sign a creative contract with the Panthers when the Colts can give him more money overall and more money sooner.With the market working against them, the Panthers’ only hope of signing Williams is to tag him and sign him to an extension. There is no requirement for Williams to sign that extension and it is becoming increasingly more common for players to hold out in protest of the tag being used this way. They, understandably, want to test their value on the open market. The other risk is that Williams could sign and play underthe tag number but refuse to negotiate an extension, thus burdening the Panthers with an untenable contract that prevents them from fielding a competitive team next season.The likeliest way that Williams does remain a Panther is if he tests the market in free agency and finds teams wary of his recent knee injury (torn MCL Stitched Kawann Short Jersey , dislocated patella in his right knee). That eventuality could see him return to the team on a short term, likely one year, prove-it deal to demonstrate his health. I consider this to be an unlikely scenario as teams like the Indianapolis Colts, with over $100 million in cap space, can afford to bet on his health.As much as it sucks to watch home-grown talent at a position of dire need walk out the door with the only recompense a future, largely worthless compensatory draft pick, it remains the correct course for the Carolina Panthers. They simply do not have sufficient resources to have options when it comes to Williams’ future.
